Parametric Interpretation in Yorktalk.
The method of parametric interpretation used in the computer program "Yorktalk," software that creates synthetic parameter files from phonological representations of speech, is explained. First, the design of the program is described, and the concept of "exponency" in prosodic analysis is explained as it is applied in the program. Then a hypothetical example of parametric analysis of a syllable is presented. Interpretation of nuclei, codas, and onsets are detailed, and diagrams are provided. The software's treatment of laterals and vowel allophony is given special attention. A 14-item bibliography is included. (MSE)
